8:29 am
similar like the marina fire. what's important here is the napa county and the city they're next step has to be to ask the governor to prepare a dis aster response. that triggers a number of things that's important to rebuilding napa . what it does, if the president designate nates it as a -- when you fee ma comes in. mobile home for example federal programs to give temporary housing to people who are displaced. people who's insurance doesn't cover all the damage. loans or public intrastructure. for the city buildings especially. 75% match.
8:30 am
>> that high. >> the only way to get city rebuilt. they wanted to give $2 million which i call spackling but later gave us 120 million. it's a long process but they have to start working right now. >> i would assume the county board of supervisor would have to contact the state who would have to draft the request and send it to washington. >> send it to washington and the president will approve it. fee ma will dock out here. folks will come out. damage done. start doing assessments. of the public buildings. start basically writing checks. that's most important thing. >> downtown napa there are a lot of small individual business
8:31 am
owners who are working there. this is their bred and butter should their business be closed for a significant amount of time? >> there are programs in sba is part of the fema response. their economic laws -- it's not perfect but does help a lot of people out. one of the more important things to remember even though we're here covering a disaster and seeing all of this damage. there are still businesses that are viable. one of the things important >> many of them if not all of them still in operation. that's an important foint make because of the images that are
8:32 am

8:34 am
for cone doe and shared cotts. differently programs for your unit and the entire building as a whole. the limits are hire to account for inflation. it's not perfect but it does work better. >> you need to be persistent. based on what we've seen, is it a legitimate request at this snoint>> absolutely. when i heard i was hearing about the courthouse and library. those are classic public bulledings eligible for public stance for the federal government. it's not just rebuilding it. it's also, if the building code require it to be built to a hiring standard. one of the big fights i had with fema and they now see it our way. >> they understand.
8:35 am
>> they you said it. they will fund to get up to code. now the wild card is it's a state historic building. they have a tendency not to have a hairline brick out of place. you have to work with them when you're doing these retro fits and rebuilds closely. only the federal government has the resource to take a building and make it what it was and make it better.
8:36 am

8:50 am
assess the damage. that's going to happen before the clean up happens. we've been here for four hours. no one is making an effort to clean up. everyone at this point just taking a look and soaking all of this in. >> not seen any building ininspect tors starting to assess the damage or anything on the buildings. >>reporter: none of the buildings red tags. i haven't seen any intekters but that didn't mean they are not here. county supervisor bill dodd was also here this morning. he said this was one of the if heart -- harder hit areas. so many people want to come to me and share their story. many of us one-on-one at 3:20 this morning. go back to 1989 loma prieta
